About this study:
Only hours before Jesus was arrested, He delivered an important message to His disciples (John 14-16). At the heart of the message He described the “fruit” His disciples would bear, the works they would do to glorify the heavenly Father. Through the gift of the Spirit, Jesus promised love (John 14:21), joy (15:11), and peace (14:27) to them and to you.
However, many Christian families and congregations lack the love, joy, and peace Jesus described. Selfishness, pride, and abusive behavior arise all to easily for us. Sin is truly second nature to human beings, even to the people of God.
This study will help you produce the fruit God calls you to bear as a believer. Through biblical examples and teaching from both the Old and New Testaments, you will explore God’s goodness and blessings for you in Christ. You will learn to crucify “the sinful nature with its passions and desires” and “live by the Spirit” (Galatians 5, 24-25).
